Writer's Wednesday -- Tertullian

"That's impossible!"

To which Tertullian (third century) would have said, "That proves it!" As a matter of fact he did say, in De Carne Christi, "Certum est quia impossibile est" (It is certain because it is impossible.) That line may not work every time, but it's still true that the apparent impossibility of a truth of Christian mystery is not an automatic arguement for its rejection. Faith goes beyond reason.
